The entire world revolves around the question, Who is Jesus? The Jewish leaders of Jesus’ day struggled with it mightily. In the end we see that religion by itself can interfere with your ability to answer this question. Despite the fact that the people were in the temple, it was the Sabbath, and that Jesus had not been charged yet, they responded to Jesus’ “I Am”, with an attempt to stone Him.
The Jews answered him, “Aren’t we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?”“You are not yet fifty years old,” they said to him, “and you have seen Abraham!”
This action shows just how spiritually blinded to the truth they were. Only a redeemed mind can fully understand the realities of the living Christ. The conflict between light and dark still exists. Jesus, the Light, always wins.
Greater is He that is in me! How about you?
